Get real;we only have one life

a decision as right
a decision as right


We only have one life-that is the reason we have to make the most of it.

In many circumstances it is surely best that we don't give in to the option of "oneuppersonship" because so many people have an axe to grind. So many people have an agenda.

This doesn't suit us-get real, free yourself from the baggage others are carrying around-it belongs to them-may they have a very nice day and then some.

Alternatively,you are your own person. You don't need other people's baggage. They cloak their baggage as a form of approval-it is a myth you cannot afford to buy into.

Just be and be glad to be to think what you want and believe what you want-it carries just as much weight and is more important than the opinion of those whose perspective is only to manipulate you for their own ends-leave them be with their baggage.

Others will try to steal your right to happiness. Others will go out of their way to burst your bubble. That is not to say they are bad people-they just begrudge you what they don't have themselves so it is best to stay away from people like that to make sure they mix with their own kind.

There are three things you have to do to ensure your own happiness:

1.Keep your own counsel.....and then some.

2.Don't get dragged into sides of an argument.

3. Plan your day as you see fit not within the terms of another's agenda-it is your day and your time

Enjoy the journey and keep light-hearted.Laugh at those who are full of doom and gloom. It is their right to be that way and it is your right to have a better perspective.

Keep it that way and be free of the sham, drudgery , begrudgery and broken dreams which they espouse to.

It is a good life-just shake off the illusion-all is well ....and then some.
